Editorial Reviews

"It has been said that the emotional wounds of high school have the half-life of uranium. And there’s a lot of truth to that statement. In my decades of medical practice, I’ve seen the adverse effects of these wounds years later—in the minds, spirits, and emotions of adult women. But this doesn’t have to be the case. The Tapping Solution for Teenage Girls provides teenage girls with precisely the tools they need to regularly and effectively discharge the emotional stress of their intense lives. As a result, girls have the opportunity to reach adulthood as whole, confident women—unencumbered by a lot of baggage from their teen years. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has a teenage daughter or who cares about one."
— Christiane Northrup, M.D., New York Times best-selling author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom and Goddesses Never Age

"Oh, how I wish I had this book when I was a teenager! The angst, the stress, the confusion, so much of it is cleared up in this fantastic guide, and most importantly, the incredible resource of EFT is explained in wonderful detail. I can’t go back in time, but I will share this book with all the teenage girls I know!"
— Kris Carr, New York Times best-selling author

"This is the book everyone out of their teens wishes they had as a teenager! Chris Wheeler is making that wish come true for a new generation of teens. The Tapping Solution for Teenage Girls is relatable, easy to follow, and transformational. The best part is knowing this information will not only help you now, but for years to come."
— Jessica Ortner, author of The Tapping Solution for Weight Loss and Body Confidence

"I will use this book in my medical practice for every teen! Teenage anxiety is a huge cause of teen illness and disease as an adult. This is by far the most useful book I’ve come across to support teens and really call out the disturbing thoughts they haven't been able to communicate to anyone. This book will change the lives of millions!"
— Kim D’Eramo, D.O., ABEM board-certified emergency physician and founder of the American Institute of Mind Body Medicine

"It’s never too early to start living consciously! The Tapping Solution for Teenage Girls is a terrific resource to help girls ease their burdens and boost their confidence in every area of life, from school and family to friendships and romance to appreciating their own changing bodies. I applaud Christine Wheeler for equipping her readers with the tools to feel and release their emotions, loosen the grip of stress, and grow into the most vibrant, connected, joyful women they can be. I only wish this remarkable book had been available when my own daughter was a teenager."
— Gay Hendricks, author of The Big Leap and co-author with Dr. Kathlyn Hendricks of Conscious Loving Ever After

"I absolutely love this book! As the mother of a teenager, I know that there is no greater problem in a girl’s life than the continuing, ever-expanding stress that our kids go through—both as they grow and change internally and as they face the outer pressures of high school and college applications. To be able to offer a simple tool that is so effective is a real game changer. I want every teenager to have access to this information. It’s not only helpful now, but it’s a phenomenal tool for life. One of the most fun aspects of the book is the guidance of Cassidy, a teenager who uses tapping and brings us into her life to help makes the connection of to how she uses this technique to battle her stress bombs. I am less stressed just knowing this book is in the world!!"
— Regena Thomashauer, founder of Mama Gena’s School of Womanly Arts

"A wise and sympathetic guide written for one of the most powerful, yet underappreciated, audiences on the planet, the teenage girl. By helping them to help themselves, with tips and tools for unlocking their inner strength, we will help to usher in a spectacular new world order."
— Mike Dooley, New York Times best-selling author of Infinite Possibilities

"I’ve long wished more people could experience how profound EFT tapping is with Christine Wheeler. And now they can! In The Tapping Solution for Teenage Girls, Christine infuses each tapping exercise with a piece of herself. She is present on every page, guiding girls out of their pain and toward their authentic selves. This book is invaluable not only for girls who long to be heard, understood, and soothed, but also for families, teachers, and friends who want to help them find their way."
— Janet Conner, author of Writing Down Your Soul, The Lotus and The Lily, Soul Vows, and The Soul Discovery Coloring Book

"I first learned EFT tapping from Chris Wheeler back in 2006 and instantly recognized that it had the potential to be a great tool in helping my then nine-year-old daughter navigate the inevitable challenges of life. Ten years later, tapping has proven to be the go-to tool for pretty much anything! Chris has a unique way of assuring girls that their upsets may seem like the end of the world but they’re completely normal and manageable with tapping. It doesn’t have to be so hard, and it won’t be with this book on your bedside table!"
— Terri Tatchell, Academy Award–nominated screenwriter
